     The mdmfs utility is designed to be a work-alike and look-alike of the
     deprecated mount_mfs(8).  The end result is essentially the same, but is
     accomplished in a completely different way.  The mdmfs utility configures
     an md(4) disk using mdconfig(8), puts a UFS file system on it using
     newfs(8), and mounts it using mount(8).
